Cozy little moroccan restaurant

We had the pleasure of visiting Al-yamal for a late lunch. The atmosphere is nice and cozy and the food was really nice prepared. The food is a welcoming break to the usual "fried fish" in the region. Really worth a visit if you want to try something different. It might be a good idea to book a... read more

Went here on Valentine's Day after reading reviews on TA. Booked the night before and managed to get a table for 7:30pm. Bit early for some but we prefer to eat earlier. Only 6 tables so can imagine difficult to get in sometimes. Very cosy inside, owner was very welcoming. There was one other couple in there but by the... More

We visited this delightfull place after consulting Tripadvisor, and was very happy that we did so. The food was wonderful, however slightly more spicy than marrocan food normally is. - but very tasty. We had tagine with lamb/chicken - both were great. As starters we shared humus, shish kebab and a grilled pepper salad, all perfectly made. Only one of... More

If you are looking for a good halal restaurant then this is the place to eat at Malaga. We had Harrira and Chicken couscous. Both were delicious and filling. A little expensive but well worth it. My daughter who is sometimes a picky eater really enjoyed their food

We were looking for a Moroccan restaurant on Friday on a day trip to Malaga, and found Al-yamal on the internet. It couldn't have been a better find and was very well worth the short walk out of the center of town. The owner asked to let him chose the menu and we agreed. There were 5 of us, and... More

My first experience of moroccan food so I can't compare but we really enjoyed it. After reading other trip advisor reviews, we went there one lunch time and booked a table for Friday night. The restaurant is very small and was very busy which made for a really good atmosphere. The whole experience made it feel like an 'occasion' to... More

After reading several articles and comments about marrocan restaurants in Malaga and specially about Al Yamal we went there for lunch. We had pita bread with humus, kofta and cous cous with lamb. Everything was superbly cooked and tasty. The atmosphere very cosy and typical Arabic, but not to much. Before giving the highest rank on Tripadvisor we need to... More
